lelah aku

Siapakah aku? Pencinta damaitah aku. Haus akan kasih, penghargaan, dan tenggang rasa. Cinta ku bagi yang berbeda denganku, seperti kucinta yang sama denganku. Kalaupun terlalu berbeda, baiknya aku menghargai keberadaannya, tanpa membagi benci.

Siapakah aku? Hausku akan penerimaan. Sudah biasa kudengar tebaran kebencian terhadap yang sama denganku. Tak pernah kuminta lahir di sini, di tempat ini, di lingkungan ini. Aku hanya ingin melihat toleransi, tak butuh ku caci maki atas nama Yang Maha Segalanya.

Harus lakukan apakah ku? 

Lari…

Lari.

Ku ingin lari. Jauh dari tempat ini. Jauh dari orang-orang itu. Jauh dari pekatnya benci itu.

Pergi.
